Wanted: Shared transport to Warkworth


I am hoping that there is an Ahuroa resident that is commuting to Warkworth who would be interested in sharing transport costs. My daughter is working for Noel Leemings in Warkworth Tuesday to Saturday 8.30am until shortly after 5.00pm. We live on West Coast Rd, not far from Hawkins Rd.

If you are able to help on any of these days it would be appreciated and an amount for petrol can be agreed upon.

Cat found on roadside…

I have found a cat (unfortunately not alive) by the side of West Coast Rd between Hawkins Rd and the one lane bridge going west. The cat is a white fluffy cat with ginger / apricot points. It definitely looks like someone’s pet, not a stray.

I have brought the cat home and buried it as it seemed wrong to leave it there. If this is your cat, I am sorry for the sad news but personally I think it is better to know.

Wanted: Corrugated iron water tanks

Hi folks

We are on the hunt for a couple of corrugated iron water tanks.
Free or cheap and reasonably easy access for pick up.
They don’t need to hold water but would prefer they were reasonably sound.
Some dents and a bit of rust is fine.
